Kristen B. and Julie F., Chapter Chats editors
Thank you! We appreciate our readers and subscribers who have followed Chapter Chats through another year. We share a wide variety of posts with you, from Winter Reading selections to upcoming author events to a tremendous selection of reviews – fiction and nonfiction, for adults, teens, and children.
Here are some of the most-viewed posts of the year:
- You may have wondered about one of the most challenged books (according to ALA), and Ash Baker provided a wonderful look at Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe.
- Two popular entries highlighted the creativity of our local young folk: Clarksville Youth Care Group Appreciation Project and the call for entries in the library’s Bookmark Contest (winning designs now available in branches).
- More recently, the Seed Share Project received a lot of interest, with the event coming soon in January.
- Reviews of The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman and Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia generated plenty of attention.
- We invited you to join a Book Discussion Group in September, and that invitation stands!
These posts garnered fewer views, but are definitely worth a look if you missed them:
- Master of the Game by Martin Indyk reviewed Henry Kissinger’s capable diplomacy.
- Wicked as You Wish by Rin Chupeco recommended a fun, fractured fairy tale
- A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik introduced a different sort of magical school – one that is actively harmful to its students.
And, by far, the most viewed post since Chapter Chats began in 2020: How to Bypass the News Paywall with Your Library Card.

We hope you’ll stick with us as we head into 2023! Happy New Year!
